Justine Tyerman has a thrilling, action-packed evening at Night Safari in Singapore as part of a Singapore Airlines stopover package en route to Laos with Innovative Travel.
Zermatt even has its own beauty contest! Mind you, here the contestants tend not to be tall and lissome, but short and rather plump. But, for this contest, too, they need flawless legs — complete with blotches!
Who doesn’t know them, the glamorous Big Five of African wildlife: the lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, and rhinoceros? Unbeknownst to many (including me, before I went on this safari), a few “ugly ducklings” carve out an existence in their shadow.

The Okavango Delta is a one of a kind, must-see phenomenon for anyone traveling to Botswana. Being the largest inland river delta also means it has one of Africa’s highest concentrations of wildlife! It’s enough to make any safari lover’s heart beat faster. Ours included, to be sure!
Botswana’s Chobe National Park, which takes its name from the river flowing through it, shelters one of the highest concentrations of wildlife in Africa.

Kangaroo Island features many of Australia’s attractions on a single large island off Adelaide, but it also has a few additional peculiarities such as sea lions, fur seals and the ‘Remarkable Rocks’ formation.
The Great Barrier Reef is one of the world’s top scuba dive sites. Cruising the Reef on a liveaboard such as the Spirit of Freedom is an especially relaxing and comfortable experience.
The Spirit of Freedom live-aboard dive cruise ship offers three day excursions out of Cairns, Queensland, to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. The return to Cairns is by small airplane, thus conveniently offering more time at the reef.
